UI Interactions_Getting text from a notepad file

I created the the exact workflow as the video demo instructed, however it shows that the file cannot be found. I have tried removing .txt in argument (input). But doesn’t work… I moved the file ‘What is RPA.txt’ to another folder but it still doesn’t work.


You have to pass the path of the folder in Working Directory without Filename

and arugments “What is RPA.txt”

Check as below

Mark as solution if this helps


:weary:Still doesn’t work… please see screenshots…
It says “cannot find a part of the path”

Hi Qin,

Kindly check with the folder path of the txt file you are using.
Hold shift key and right click on the text file and select on copy as path and use it in FileName property.
This doesn’t need Working Directory.

Hope it works now.
